You are going to continue reading the book called ‘The Tiger’s Path’.

Today we would like you to read Chapter 2 and complete the online quiz.  This has been set as a 2Do on Purple Mash for you.




Task 1: Task 1: Take the quiz and see how many you can get correct. This quiz is focused on identifying adverbs within a sentence. Let us know what your score was!


Task 2:

This week our English tasks are going to be focused around this short video, called ‘Catch It’.


Watch the video again. Can you write the story from the perspective of one of the meerkats? Remember to make your writing as exciting as possible.

Think about including:

  • A verb or adverb to start your sentence (racing across the savannah, skilfully, we passed the fruit)
  • Use short, snappy sentence
  • Tell the reader when something happened (moments later, a few minutes has passed)
  • Expanded nouns phrases (starving, calculating vulture)
  • Use similes (like a well trained rugby team, we rallies into formation)
  • Interesting vocabulary choices (sprinted instead of ran, scrubland instead of ground)




Something fun!

We are going to set you another project for the week, focused around the theme of ‘the ocean’.


Have a go at creating a collage of the ocean. This can be on a piece of paper or 3D! You can paint, draw, use coloured paper; the possibilities are endless!

Here are some ideas:


Think about the animals that could be in the collage (link this to your research from last week), the types of plant life you may see in the ocean, using different shades and textures to create the patterns of the ocean!



Keep in touch – remember any work you have completed can be emailed to us to be marked. This can be typed work or a photo.


Stay safe.
